Back home i'm a pretty social person. I'm not the sort to go out clubbing every night, but I've got a pretty wide circle of friends and love to meet new people.
Here, at uni however, I am completely lost. Freshers is nearly over and I've met hardly anyone. I only know about 4 people in my halls and have only chatted briefly to a couple of people on my course in the course inductions and stuff. Everyone else seems to be finding it so easy. I've tried going along to the club nights, and joining people for pre-drinks but I end up just sitting on the corner of the group not talking to anyone. I just don't know what to say. Everyone else is finding it so easy, the majority of my halls all know each other already.
My friends all went to uni last year and they've all said that you end up being really good friends with the people in your block and they're the people you go out with a lot, and they're all moving into houses with their old flatmates this year. But I don't know any of them! And they probably think i'm a bit wierd because i just don't say anything...
Anyone else feeling really lost and lonely? I hate it. I hate feeling so constantly alone.
Anyone else feeling completely lost at uni? Watch

Act with them how you act with your friends from home.
But you will meet people on your course and they are often better friends than flatmates.

I know how you feel, I felt like that last year.
It becomes easier once freshers is over. I find people during freshers week are fake, booze obsessed and far too excited. Most the people you talk to in freshers week you'll never even see again, so it's best to make friends with people in your block, on your course and in any societies you've joined. It's far easier said than done, I know. I've had huge problems meeting people too.
The most important thing though is making sure you keep in contact with your old friends. They will be your rock when you need them

You'll be fine, just wait until you meet people on your course or by other means who you actually like. With the exception of those who already know each other I can guarantee that they're all just hanging round/drinking with each other because they feel they have to. Sure, some people will end up the best of friends but they won't be yet.
